If I was placing an infant in an adoptive family, would I choose my warm, loving, self-deprecating gay brother and his kind, thoughtful partner—or the Romneys? Geeze, I wouldn't even hesitate a minute! There's no way in hell I'd place a poor, defenseless child with a shallow, rigid and money-hungry man who's the epitome of white male privilege, and his pampered wife who's subordinate to a judgmental, patriarchal belief system. I mean, duh.
What if Mittens had adopted Glee's Rachel Berry instead of her two gay dads? Unthinkable.
Mitt Romney made a speech via satellite at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Saturday morning in which he reiterated his view that children are better off growing up with hetereosexual parents.
“We need to strengthen the commitment that exists in this country to family. I hope to be able to talk to young people and tell them how important it is to get married before they have children because the opportunity for a mom and a dad to help guide the life of a child gives them such an enormous advantage in their lives going forward,” Mr. Romney said.
The Politicker reached out to the Romney campaign to see whether they felt a child could equally benefit from the guidance provided by a gay couple. Ryan Williams, a spokesman for Mr. Romney, said it is the candidate’s long held belief children are better off with straight parents.
“This is what he’s been saying forever,” Mr. Williams said. “He’s always said that the ideal setting to raise a child is with the mom and the dad.”Though Mr. Romney believes states should be allowed to give gay couples the right to adopt children, he has said in multiple interviews that he believes a heterosexual marriage is the“ideal setting” for children to grow up in. He opposes granting either marriages or civil unions to gay couples.
